MARTA to the Michael C. Carlos Museum

The Michael C. Carlos Museum at 571 South Kilgo Circle is on the Emory University campus and contains artifacts from the ancient world. The museum is not in walking distance from a MARTA station, but there are several ways to get there without a car.


There are two buses that travel near the museum, bus 6 and bus 36. Bus 6 departs from the Inman Park and Lindbergh Center stations, and bus 36 from Midtown and Decatur. Regardless of which bus you ride, exit the bus at N. Decatur Road and Dowman Drive/Oxford Road, which is at the roundabout on campus (see area map).

Enter Dowman Drive and turn right at the Kilgo Circle to reach the museum.


For a shorter commute, connect with Uber or Lyft at the Candler Park MARTA station on the blue rail line. The closest station on the red/gold line is North Avenue. The ride is 15 minutes from North Avenue or 9 minutes from Candler Park.
